(cheers and applause) let me know. let me know. i'm eager to see it. here's what i ask congress, though. don't walk away from reform. not now. not when we are so close. let us find a way to come together and finish the job for the american people. (applause) let's get it done. let's get it done. now even as health care reform would reduce our deficit it's not enough to dig us out of a massive fiscal hole in which we find ourselves. it's a challenge that makes all others that much harder to solve. and one that's been subject to a lot of political posturing. so let me start the discussion of government spending by setting the record straight. at the beginning of the last decade, the year 2,000, america had a budget surplus of over $200 billion. (applause) by the time i took office, we had a one-year deficit of over one trillion dollars and projected deficits of eight trillion dollars over the next decade. most of this was the result of not paying for two wars, two tax cuts, and an expensive prescription drug progra

to national news this morning, new numbers bode well for the senate's healthcare reform bill. a medicare report shows the senate plan would raise costs slightly but over time would reduce the annual increases in healthcare spending. the study finds that health spending which accounts for 1/6 of the economy would go up by less than a percent more than it would have anyway in the coming decade. >>> there's more fallout this morning following the release of a new jersey man who caused that major security scare at newark liberty airport. the incident panicked passengers and snarled flights worldwide. but the suspect faces only a $500 fine. karen brown explains for wjz there is a call for harsher penalties. >> jong faced the glare of the media outside a newark airport police station. last time he was at the airporter terminal was shut down for six hours after the 28-year-old doctoral student ducked under a barrier and snuck into the terminal to walk his girlfriend to a gate. >>> a week later, even frequent fliers like john casian know are still nervous about the security breach. >> it does gi

the entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid and also government spending, is how little of the federal budget it covers. i thought there was one paragraph in the "new york times" sorry of this this morning that really kind of summed it up. it says the payoff in budget savings would be small relative to the deficit. the estimated $250 billion in savings. $250 billion. over ten years would be less than 3% of the roughly $9 trillion -- $9 trillion -- in new debt that will accrue over the next ten years nap shows you just how massive these sums are that we're talking about. i think it's probably good politics for the president to announce this, that he's going to put this freeze in. whether he can get it passed in an election year when all of these people that are running for re-election in the congress are out there with their political survival at stake i think is another matter. he may get a freeze in some of these programs, i think it's going to be very difficult for him to get a freeze in all of them that he's talking about. >> because voters are paying attention and the economy is clearly t

with the long term debt before everybody talks about you have to do something about social security and medicare. and i was in the deal last time with bb dole 20 some years ago where we settled for 30 years social security. we all worked together. and it was really disappointing that seven of the republican co-sponsors of that proposal yesterday voted against it. and then when the president talked about the kind of things we have to do to take responsibility for what we did to add to the debt and what they did to add to the debt previously, there didn't seem to be much of a reaction. but this is a little bit of theater and i'm hoping -- i know there's a core of republican senators who want to work on this with us. >> mr. vice president, thank you for the time this morning. do appreciate it. >> thanks, harry. >>> now here's maggie. >>> let's hear from the other side, republican senator john mccain joins us from capitol hill. good morning, senator mccain. >> good morning, maggie. >> you just heard vice president biden echo what president obama said last night. now nat democrat nos longer have the
